I booked two rooms from 7/6/13 to 7/9/13, a Classic Queen (room 1017) for my father-in-law, and a Deluxe Queen Queen (room 1011) for my family (2 adults and 2 children). I booked the Queen Queen room with the "Sunny Side Up Package" rate ($249/day) which included valet parking ($35/day value) and two breakfast vouchers at the hotel restaurant Andaluca ($25/day value).
The Deluxe Queen Queen room was very spacious considering this is a downtown hotel. However the bathroom was very small, with only a thin shelf for counter space, towel storage inside the shower, and no towel racks (very odd). Staff for the hotel was professional, friendly, and quick to respond to our needs. We had three separate requests: extra towels; TV not working; and a non-feather pillow. Each request was completed within 10 minutes. They do not have self-serve guest laundry (coin-op machines), but instead offer a very pricey laundry service. The bell-hop service was the best I have ever experienced. Small tips seem to go a long way. The Concierge desk will not let you take the luggage cart to your room yourself, you must call for bell-hop (strange). The rooms seem to have very thick walls, with the only noise coming through the door from the hallways. My father-in-law stated that he slept "better than ever" in his room.
The location is great. Walking distance to Pike Place Market and connected directly to the monorail plaza via indoor hallways. Monorail takes cash only, but is an inexpensive way to get to Seattle center (space needle, EMP, etc). This made for an easy end to a long day of walking.
We had 3 experiences with the Andaluca restaurant for breakfast: A+, F, C-. Each experience was highly dependent on the wait staff: some were professional; some were extreme rookies with little training. I'm so glad we had our best experience first. Each experience took 1.5 hours to feed a family of 5. The first visit took long because we needed time to look over the menu and discuss the options. During the second visit, I had to find the waiter to ask for my check. During the third visit, she had to ring up my check 3 times to get it right because they had problems applying the vouchers correctly. Expect to pay $15-$20 per person, even for a bowl of oatmeal. The "Special" on Sunday July 7 was FANTASTIC! Eggs Benedict with crab. YUM!
We ended each night at Oliver’s Lounge. Drinks are pricey at $15 each, but the martini's were top notch. Wait staff at the bar are extremely professional, and the atmosphere is relaxing.
